Boy at White Harvest Farms in Jacksonville, FL

In 2012, Clara White Mission established White Harvest Farms at 4850 Moncrief Road, in Jacksonville’s northwest quadrant. The 10.5-acre tract is a farm, farmer’s market, and educational training program serving food desert residents. The farm shares a boundary with an extensive food desert community, identified by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. According to Department statistics, more than 59% of community residents suffer from low access to fresh and healthful foods due to economic challenges and lack of available transportation to mainstream grocery stores. The only readily available food sources within this food desert community are limited to fast-food restaurants, convenience stores, liquor stores and gas stations.

White Harvest Farm grows fresh produce and provides agricultural education for food desert residents. Farm tours and training are implemented on-site and are maintained by staff, veterans, volunteers and youth. Food desert residents and school youth participation in wellness, nutritional workshops and cooking demonstrations in partnership with UF Extensions, Junior League of Jacksonville, Communities and Schools, churches, schools and civic groups.
